Marist over Jacksonville 42-35

The Associated Press

POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) -- Chuckie Looney threw five touchdown passes to lead Marist over Jacksonville 42-35 on Saturday.

Looney was 26-of-36 and 362 yards. He holds the Red Foxes' career records for passing yards, passing touchdowns, completions and attempts. Atiq Lucas rushed for 122 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries. The win puts Marist (6-3, 5-1 Pioneer) in a 3-way conference tie for first place with Sand Diego and Butler.

The Marist defense blunted five consecutive Dolphin drives in the first half. But Jacksonville (4-5, 3-3) came alive with just over two minutes left in the second quarter on a pair of touchdown passes by Kade Bell on back-to-back possessions, one for 93 yards and another for 14 yards to knot the halftime score at 21-21.

Looney answered with three more touchdowns in the second half, two to game-leading receiver Armani Martin, frustrating the Dolphins' attempts to tighten the score.

The return of the Special One to Stamford Bridge – for the first time since being fired last December – was all the inspiration the Blues needed as they rampaged to a 4-0 Premier League victory over Mourinho’s listless Manchester United. It took just 30 seconds for Chelsea to grab the lead.

  • The Jimmy Vesey show leads Rangers over Capitals

    Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin had the big highlight early in the game on Saturday night, but it was New York Rangers rookie Jimmy Vesey that ended up stealing the show. Vesey scored a pair of goals for the Rangers — the first multi-goal game of his career —  to help lead his team to a 4-2 win in Washington. Even though he had never played a game in the NHL before this season, Vesey was still one of the most sought after free agents this summer after he completed his college career at Harvard. He eventually signed an entry level deal with the Rangers, and given how much attention his free agency saga generated it seemed hard to believe that he could ever match the hype. Especially

  • Report: When Kings hired George Karl, Rudy Gay greeted him with, ‘Welcome to basketball hell’

    The Kings were 18-34 when they hired George Karl in February 2015. They hadn’t made the playoffs in eight years. Sacramento fired coach Michael Malone earlier in the season, because – after a better start than anyone could’ve reasonably expected – the team slumped while its best player was out sick. The Kings gave the job to Tyrone Corbin and promised him the rest of the season, though they obviously reneged by hiring Karl. Owner Vivek Ranadivé declared he wanted a jazz director. The front office was chaotic, and general manager Pete D’Alessandro and special advisor Chris Mullin would soon depart. DeMarcus Cousins stewed. Rudy Gay had been in Sacramento barely a year, but he had the franchised

  • What Sprint Cup drivers said after the Chase race at Talladega

    Joey Logano won the Hellmann’s 500 at Talladega Superspeedway, advancing himself to the Round of 8 in the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Here’s what the field of drivers had to say about their afternoon at Talladega. JOEY LOGANO – Winner:  “It’s never a layup here at Talladega. It’s always close. You never get a big lead … Todd made some good adjustments during the race and found some speed in the car, so that was pretty neat to see some of that. We got that track position and just hung onto it. I was able to stay on the bottom and try to run the bottom and keep everyone in line, and that worked out really well. Kevin (Harvick) did a good job with that, which ultimately got us all a great finish.

To get her fans even more excited about the concert, Swift – who is apparently already in Austin for rehearsals – took to Instagram earlier this week and posted several videos. The first clip was a short scene showing Swift playing an acoustic guitar.

Here’s what we learned from a humbling afternoon for Mourinho back in west London. NIGHTMARE RETURN FOR MOURINHO “You’re not special anymore!” “You’re getting sacked in the morning!” “Who are ya?

  • Fitzpatrick takes aim at Jets braintrust after leading rally

He's just not sure he will be because he's not sure Jets management believes in him anymore. And Fitzpatrick didn't sound thrilled about that last part, when he called out owner Woody Johnson, GM Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles for their lack of faith after the Jets' 24-16 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Fitzpatrick went 9 of 14 for 120 yards and a touchdown after he was called on to replace his injured replacement, Geno Smith in the second quarter. He called the whole situation "pretty ironic," but it was clear he thought the

  • Report: Bucks preparing for Greg Monroe to opt in next summer

    The Bucks got a rude awakening about Greg Monroe‘s value when they tried to sell low on him this offseason – and still got no takers. Now, Milwaukee seems to have gotten the picture. Monroe – whose agent claimed the center could name his contract terms from multiple teams last year – might opt into the final year of his deal, which would pay $17,884,176. Zach Lowe of ESPN: Milwaukee is already preparing for the possibility Monroe opts into his deal for 2017-18, league sources say. The Bucks indicated this thinking when they extended Giannis Antetokounmpo‘s contract, putting a large 2017-18 salary rather than a relatively low cap hold on the books to begin next offseason. If Monroe opts in, the
